Afternoon Mix: Zen, meat, Australians news, I'm Rick James, Bitch and An opening between the legs

While I am in the midst of fending off a migraine and taking the advice of my Zen master (watch the Weather Channel), you can peruse today's required reading. Wait, first an important reminder: Let us not forget that today is International Eat an Animal for PETA Day. Now, I have been told that PETA actually stands for People Eating Tasty Australians. While I'm sure Tim Blair and his fellow citizens might be pretty tasty roasted over the barbie (oh, look! I made a cliche Australian joke!), I have no desire to have Tim for dinner, being that he promised to buy me a drink when he gets here in August. What person in their right mind would chow down on someone who offers them a free drink? So, you go eat the Australians. I'll stick to animal meat. And by animals, I mean non-mammals. This lovely woman is a PETA activist. She's drinking out of a toilet bowl to prove some point. Hey, I know some guys who would get turned on by that picture. Maybe that's why Andy posted it. I really can't think of any other reason to be leaning over a toilet while wearing fake fur. Come to think of it, I can. Ah, those were the days. Ok, now the reading: Winds of Change: Hippercritical's Winds of War - an excellent roundup of world news. Silent Running: Lacrimosa Jonah Goldberg: On a Lighter Note (And that's just because I agree with him. Dave Chappelle is the funniest man in America right now). And am I the only one who has had The Clash's Spanish Bombs playing in their head for three days? And I don't mean that in a flippant sort of way. It just crawled into my mind and won't leave. Ok, when you're done reading all that, go watch this short movie. Get back to me on it [Relax, there's no politics involved. Just err...blood].

I think her point is that a toilet bowl has much cleaner water than any Manhattan restaurant.

I actually leave the TV tuned to the Weather Channel whenever we leave the kids watching a video. It's the one channel where if they hit 'stop,' they won't see anything offensive.

Dave Chappelle is the funniest man in America right now

I must therefore have him killed.

I meant besides you. Of course.

Not sure how to contact you other than leaving a comment, but I heard about Home Movies via the Adult Swim board on www.toonzone.net. Toonzone's a pretty strict forum dealing with animation mostly from Disney, to old school toons, to Toonami and Adult Swim on Cartoon Network. It's also pretty reliable and several Williams Street people have given interviews and spoken with Toonzone personnel about shows.

So yeah, big pitch. But point is, it IS coming from a reliable source.

Here is the link to the specific thread:

What person in their right mind would chow down on someone who offers them a free drink?

I would.

Oh, wait... you meant literally?

FREDO, come on get your mind out of the gutter (sure I thought the same thing, but was too polite to point it out)

She's FLUSHED with outrage over animal rights violations.....

Gee, Joe - that joke just BOWLED me over.

Actually, it was CRAPPY.

Michele,

When you join with us making puns, URINE good company. I'm sure others would TANK you to stop.

I thought that video was a joke at first. With the way they kept using the phrase, "blood coming from a hole between her legs", when the older sister was demonstrating I expected her to pull off the pad and blood to come shooting out, ala SNL Julia Childs type deal.

"And am I the only one who has had The Clash's Spanish Bombs playing in their head for three days?"

Um, well, I didn't, but now that you've suggested it, I don't think I'll be able to shake it for some time. I'm highly vulnerable to song suggestion in that way. Darn you, Michele!
(Spanish bombs in Andaluc`ia...)
P.S. At least it's a good tune.

I've come down with a pretty vicious stomach bug, but I didn't let that stop me from Eating an Animal for PETA. I had beef broth this morning, and to make my contribution complete, Beef with Stars soup for dinner. See? Even the ill can participate. No excuses now...

Oh, I forgot to say that I'm currently located in Hamburg, Germany, making this truly an International Eat an Animal for PETA Day.

As an Australian, I must protest at the omplication that we Australians are tasty to eat. We are not. All those years in the outback, chasing kangaroos, hunting crocodiles and drinking copious quantities of real beer (as opposed to the weak pissy tasting water that masquerades as beer in the US) has made us completely inedible.

Unless the site was referring to that type of eating.

Thanks for the reminder, I'd forgotten. Oh well, we were having pork chops for dinner anyway....the other white mammal.

"And am I the only one who has had The Clash's Spanish Bombs playing in their head for three days?"

No, but I have had Camptown Racetrack going through my head for the last week.

I curse whatever program insidiously inserted that song into their show!

JFH: It's now out of the gutter and back in the sewer where it belongs. ;)

She certainly looks like she belongs there...

And I had a cheeseburger meal from In N Out to add to the holiday fun. Eat yer heart out, PETA!

Wife is out of town so I have had about 14 roast beef sandwhiches this weekend.

Woman with the toilet thing reminds me, actually, of the last time I tried any of that vege meat.

Dave Chappelle is in fact the funniest man, and not only that, the funniest person. That must mean that they will are going to ask him to do Monday Night Football. Him and Michaels? What a great pair. Do you believe in miracles? Fo Shizzle!

Get well soon.

Oh and Rita just make sure the Pork doesn't have any human in it--that's the other other white meat--otherwise, you might be doing your own rendition of the PETA lady (Stupid PETA Tricks) at your own toilet tonight.

I woder is Jonah has seen the blind Klansman bit.

I almost died laughing at that one...literally.

Rhesa, I'm having a Double Double no cheese and bringing my own barbecue sauce. This is what happens to good cows when they die.

At my local In 'n Out, I'll also be inaugurating my new holiday, Eat a Potato Product for VRMM.

I ate enough chicken breast strips to account for at least a half dozen of those featheredcluckers.

<plop-plop, fizz-fizz>

Mmmmmm...got beef short ribs cooking as I type this.

And: "I'm Rick James, bitch!"

I think Dave Chapelle is not just borderline racist, but way beyond that. And damn funny. Probably the funniest thing on T.V. right now (but south park is still a perennial favorite of mine).

The blind black member of the KKK bit... funny as hell. Chapelle is not afraid to take chances, good for him and comedy central for letting him do it. I wonder what the censors have rejected...

I felt really guilty about the whole Clash thing (I play the Clash ALL the time, anyway, though, so there was a good chance I'd have Spanish Bombs running through my head anyway) . . . I'm glad someone else has admitted it. Thanks, Michele!

Uh, every day is eat an animal for PETA day around here. Should I do anything special?

NOTE: Fried venison heart is very special and would really freak out the freaks; unfortunately, I finished that after last deer season and the next season is several months away.

Maybe I'll pick up some cute little bunny carcasses at the market (but it takes so darned many of them to make a proper meal).

Definately a turn-on. MORE PICTURES LIKE THIS PLEASE!
